This was a good book. Not excellent, but there was nothing about it that I found lacking. The main character, Shaye Archer, is just damaged enough, and in an interesting enough way, to provide the author with ample room to explore her character in future books in the series. The plot was fast paced and intricate. There was plenty of suspense. The writing was good. The dialogue was witty.
I liked the character enough to pick up another in this series should I stumble across it, but not enough to eagerly seek the next book out. 4.5 stars.
